Congratulations to Susie Speller and Kyriakos Porfyrakis who have been conferred the title of Associate Professor by the MPLS Division in recognition of their important contributions to research, teaching and citizenship in the University.
Professor Peter Bruce FRS, Wolfson Chair of Materials, has been awarded the Royal Society of Chemistry's 2016 Liversidge Award for his contributions to the chemistry of energy conversion and storage, particularly pioneering the lithium-air battery, and the discovery of ionic conductivity in crystalline polymers.
Congratulations to Professor George Smith FRS who has been honoured as the 2016 Distinguished Scientist in Physical Science of the Microscopy Society of America. George will receive his award at Microscopy & Microanalysis 2016 meeting in Columbus, Ohio USA on July 25, followed by a plenary address.
